Today I attended Sadie Williams funeral at Bushbury. Sadie was one of Ashmore Parks indelible characters. A nice friendly lady that always had time for a chat.
I have known Sadie for most of my adult life, always up for a chat, indeed I assisted her into her home in Kitchen Lane.
She passed away on the 9th April 2017, at home suddenly.
Sadie was not a rich woman financially, but she was rich in the fact that she had so any friends!
She didn’t have a large family, but close on a 100 neighbours friends and acquaintances turned up at the Crematorium today to give this lovely lady a real warm Ashmore Park send off!
Mary and I were delighted to see so many people and hear their Sadie story’s. Neighbours had organised a collection, run a raffle to pay for flowers and a Wake at the Corpus Christie Social Club.
Ilona , Paula and Bonnie you deserve a bit of credit for organising that tremendous neighbour response today.
As for Sadie I think it would have knocked her socks off to see so many people attending her funeral.
I recall her fondness of animals, and it was good to see that neighbours donations had also covered a small charity payment to Sadie charities which included, The PDSA, The ARC Ashmore Rescue for Cats, Staffordshire Wildlife Trust,The Wolseley Centre.
Sadie there was a tremendous gathering today for you, and your friends and neighbours celebrated your life, and loves!
Mary and I feel privileged to have been there with you. I gave you a little wink! I am happy to have known you and counted you as a friend
